Virginia law requires any person under 19 years of age to have an instruction permit for at least 9 months and have a minimum of 36 hours of classroom instruction before a driver’s license can be issued. Students 19 years of age and older may hold their learner’s permit for 60 days in lieu of completing a driver training course.

Driving Tip 1

Don’t Text

Research shows texting―on average―causes a loss of focus on the road for 4.6 seconds.

You can drive the length of a full football field in that time. A lot can go wrong while you drive the length of a football field without your eyes on the road.

Don’t try the “texting-while-stopped” approach, either, as many States banned texting while driving.

And, when you have your head down, you won’t notice key developments that may occur. Remember, you still need to pay attention to the road when you’re stopped.

Tip 2

Practice Defensive Driving

Always be aware of the traffic ahead, behind, and next to you, and have possible escape routes in mind.

Stay at least one car length behind the car in front of you in slower speeds, and maintain a larger buffer zone with faster speeds.

Some car insurance companies will even give you a discount if you take an approved defensive driving course to improve your driving skills.

Tip 3

Obey the Speed Limit

Speeding is a major contributor to fatal teen accidents.

That’s especially true when driving on roads with lots of traffic or with which you’re not familiar.

Don’t feel pressured to keep up with traffic if it seems like everyone else is flying by you.

Driving a safe speed helps ensure your well-being, and keeps you away from costly traffic tickets that can cause a sharp hike in your auto insurance premium.

Tip 4

Minimize Distractions

It may be tempting to eat, drink, flip around the radio dial, or play music loudly while you’re cruising around town; however, all can cause your mind or vision to wander, even for a few seconds.

As an inexperienced driver, you are more apt to lose control of your car.

Distractions can significantly increase the chances that you

1) not notice impending danger or notice it too late and

2) lose the ability to control the vehicle.

Final Word

Teens Becoming Safe Drivers

There’s no substitute for driving experience and the wisdom that age brings.

Applying the previous tips you’ll enhance the odds you won’t become a teenage driver accident statistic.

Also, when you have a good driving record free of accidents, it’s easier to find cheap car insurance in the future.
